Nailed it!

 

I’m loving that nail art has made a comeback in recent years. My bi-weekly mani.pedi trips are truly one of the highlights of my month. I relish in soaking my tired toes in the emollient, warm, bubbling water. I’m lucky that my nail tech gal is a true artist when it comes to painting the tiny little canvases that I have at the tip of my fingers.

Here are some designs I’ll be adding to my growing list.

Heavenly Hair

 

I’m sort of a hair freak. I love tousled beach waves and I can’t deny a good top knot makes me smile.

Here’s some inspo pics of what I’m feeling right now.

Vamanos al Mexico!

I was truly lucky that for my birthday my boyfriend took me to paradise. Cozumel, Mexico was simply perfect. We stayed at the Melia Cozumel, which was right on the beach. I could throw a stone into the ocean from my balcony. We slept with the sliding doors open each night and listened to the waves. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect trip.

Can’t Live Without…

 For most of my life, I’ve been a beauty product fiend. I’ll try just about anything if it’s for hair, skin or make up. Below are my go to everyday, can’t live without products and also some fun facts about my beauty habits.

141027-Oxford Blog-0094-L

I’ll start my beauty bit by stating that Sephora is my happy place. Most of my products are available there and what girl doesn’t get addicted to seeing her points rack up so she can get that free 500 point perk or VIB Rouge status???

I’m sort of a nut about my hair. Most of the time, I like to keep it natural and minimal maintenance. That means an oil to de-frizz and soften after I wash it, then a sea salt spray to help amp up my waves.

I’ve worn the same perfume for the last 8 years. I’m complimented at least a couple times a week by random people that smell me.

I’ve tried about every mascara imaginable (drug store and designer) and Hypnose Drama is by far the most elite product on the market.

I struggle with extremely dry skin on my face. Laura Mercier Face Polish is gentle enough to use multiple times a week and keeps my skin smooth. It’s kind of pricey, but like most Laura Mercier face products, it really is worth the price.

I’m an eye shadow palette collector. I can’t even count how many I have. I think they are the most beautiful little boxes on the planet. Every gal needs a great selection of nudes and Urban Decay makes the best and their Naked line is all time.

I just reached my 3oth year of life and it’s safe to say I’m well into my recent obsession with lipstick. I swear by 2 brands. Bite and Kat Von D. Try any shade and I guarantee you’ll be hooked. I’m a chapstick junkie so a lipstick that doesn’t dry out my lips is gold and these two sparkle like 14 karat.

New Year, New Body

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I had an extra special season this year as I had my 3rd baby at the end of October and the whole holiday season just felt even more exciting with the joy of a newborn around.

Now that the holidays are over, I can’t help but be touched by the New Years Resolutions and just the whole mental idea of starting over. After having 3 babies in 4 years, I’m really ready to get serious about getting in shape. Yoga is my favorite form of a workout and I have started to get excited about it. If you are an instagrammer, I wanted to invite you to join me in #bestrongin2015. Follow @beachyogagirl and @kinoyoga to learn the poses.

Below are some fun poses to try and some you can do with your kids {if you have kids}.

Uniform

This is pretty much my daily uniform.  LA has been so cold lately so I’ve been layering a sweater or sweatshirt over a long sleeved shirt and then I throw my leather jacket over. photophoto

Golden Hour

The air is crisp (at least for Californians).

I grew up in snowy Ohio so this kind of weather actually feels pretty perfect.

Throw a faux fur on over a pair of jeans and boots and its the perfect combination of fashion and fall.
